The New York Times will be further embarrassed now that officers from the military unit in which Judith Miller was embedded are talking to the press. Not only was Miller publishing dubious rumors about Iraq’s weapons on the front page of the Times, but Howard Kurtz reports that she was playing a much more active role in the mission of the unit than simply accompanying them and reporting on what they were doing. According to the story, Miller acted as a go-between for Ahmed Chalabi (widely believed to be the source of the speculation she published as coming from unnamed sources) and otherwise influenced the unit to do her bidding. This, of course, plays right into my existing image of Miller, whose reporting during the war seemed highly irresponsible to me.
